Wisdom does not belong to a particular nation, ethnic group, or religion. The belief that some exotic ancient cultures carry some knowledge that is pure and elevated is an over-romantic view. It looks desperately for something else on our species than the destructive predatory animals that we are. Put two groups of humans in discordance and see how long the wisdom holds. Put money in the pocket of an exotic culture, and let see how much the wisdom hold. Give power to the oppressed and let them see how long the alleged wisdom they have carried will stand.

Some individuals carry wisdom, but wisdom is a rare quality on the path of extinction. When you find wisdom, stick to it, and try to absorb it until nothing can make you change because you will be tempted to let it go.

If you carry true wisdom, you are going to die poor, powerless, and happy to the extent that no one else will comprehend. They will call you mad.
